Super Bowl Record for Most Touchdown Passes

min read
In this Jan. 29, 1995, file photo, San Francisco 49ers' quarterback Steve Young (8) runs over San Diego's Darrien Gordon (21) for a first down during the first quarter of Super Bowl XXIX at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami. The NFL became a truly booming business in the 1990s, with multi-billion-dollar TV contracts, expansion to 30 teams, and a late-decade wave of new stadiums. Players began to pick up a bigger share of the wealth, with the dawn of unrestricted free agency. The results on the field were largely dominated by the NFC, with Emmitt Smith and the Dallas Cowboys, Young and the 49ers, and Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers enjoying the most success.

49ers quarterback Steve Young holds the record for most touchdown passes in a Super Bowl game.

On Jan. 29, 1995, during Super Bowl XXIX, Young threw for 325 yards and six touchdowns in a 49-26 rout of the San Diego Chargers. 

Three of the six touchdowns went to – you guessed it – Jerry Rice. 

Ricky Watters hauled in a pair of scores as well, and the final TD went to William Floyd.
